Sorry CameraEdit, and Ahso13, I gotta say something.
ok... lets put it in the most simplest way... what if I came to all of you haters that are magicians and ridiculed and hated you for just doing tricks for fun? a trick is a trick impromptu or not... illusionists make illusioins.. duh. magicians are illusionists.. this whole fight shouldnt have even started... why argue? its a good illusion and can be done easily in an audience... its all performance. with or without stooges, gimmicks, actors, wires, ect... its performance whateve shade of color you spray it its the same thing as it was before.. a performance.. an illusion. nothing more. nothing less. it isnt impossible to make such illusions.. there is a nice kit called the icarus that does similar things to criss's levitation.. criss could have just found a more flashy way of applying this affect in some different way that allows more free movement. and thus that is where you find where he flew from one building to the next.. there is endless possibilities. I believe no matter what the illusion. there is a way you can pull it off if you set your mind to it.. I have seen this levitation done before by criss. it isnt fake.. I followed him and saw it in 3 random places. its a very elusive illusion at best.. the best Ive seen in my life.. and the whole seen in the bar. he could have hidden it behind the bar from the people in front of him.. same as his escalator scene.. the wall on the ecalator was just enough to obstruct vision of what was really happening. I have done many similar things and actually made my own technique. it isnt impossible to apply this to higher heights.. Im just afraid of heights and failure and thus I have not done it more than once... now please... stop fighting over it... no matter what shape, size, color, ect you make it.. its what it is. and theres nothing to change that... now why havent I heard anyone pick at david blaine? he is far worse than criss ever could imagine... blaine thinks he is all that cause he does the king rising and barcculdi -_- and he thinks his floating paper and dollar trick is the bomb... I could teach it to a 5 year old... leave angel alone and actually ridicule those who dont have the high talent... in fact... you should ridicule yourself so that you can improve your own skills. instead of wasting time on putting down a fellow illusionist...
its an illusion. its meant to be fake. geeze
First of all, welcome to Penguin Town, nice to have you here, I think.......
Second, I think your whole paragraph was about 3 sentences..... How bout going to school and learning some grammer? Oh and what's barcculdi, new levitation? You gotta teach me sometime.
Anyways, see you are the kind of person that does not argue with reason. So you're saying that an illusion is an illusion, no matter how it is acheived. Like I have mentioned before, Angel using camera tricks is like pro athletes using steroids. The athletes still play well, so it doesn't matter if they cheated or not? If those illsuions are acheived by camera tricks, they are not illusions, they're special effects that should be in movies. Don't you get it? As magicians, we lie, it's our job, but we are "Honest Lyers
", if a magician uses camera tricks to acheive an effect, he's a lyer
people that pick on Blaine, alot
. You can teach a 5 year-old to do floating dollar bill, but try teaching yourself to do the Simple Switch if you even know what that is. Also Blaine didn't even do the King Rising, don't try to argue if you don't have your facts right. King Rising came out years after Blaine's Street Magic special. Blaine is much better a magician than you ever will be.
As for comparing Angel and Blaine, Angel is a stage magician, Blaine is a close-up/street magician, they're too different to compare. And about Blaine doing easy tricks, well first of all, his technical skills are much better than yours (simple switch). Second, if you say that Angel using camera tricks is fine, then how can you bash on Blaine for doing easy effects when camera editing is cheating and taking the easiest way out?
At least when I was argueing with CamerEdit and Ahso13, they argued with reason and proof, you're just biased and one-sided.
Anyways, I didn't accuse Angel of anything, all I did was explain why his arguement isn't even an arguement.
